Tanaraq (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Tanaraq (Marvel)' on Amazon

Tanaraq has incredible strength and durability. The full extent of his powers were never stated, but his strength is born of sorcery ancient as winter and black as night. The Great Beasts are older than the Earth, but upon entering our dimension they must be stopped within twenty minutes or they will never be stopped at all. It was said "there is no one in all the world with power enough to truely harness and control a Great Beast".

Tanaraq has the ability to compell others to do his bidding. Such as he willed the Wrecking Crew to accomplish his tasks

Tanaraq is a Great Beast, an immortal god banished to the Realm of the Beasts by the Northern Gods. When Walter Langkowski attempted to flood his body with gamma radiation to become a being similar to the Hulk, his experiment broke though an ancient mystical barrier which Tanaraq, a Great Beast discovered. The experiment formed a symbiotic relationship between Walter and Tanaraq. Whenever Walter turned into his Sasquatch form, he was actually trading places with Tanaraq. Eventually, Tanaraq was able to take control of his body in this realm. Snowbird realized this and attacked Tanaraq, slaying him by in herself taking Tanaraq form, stranding Walter's soul in the Realm of the Beasts.

He has recently returned and summoned the Wrecking Crew to the Realm of the Beasts and bestowed them new powers to cause havok and destroy the world. He also give them the power to command Surtur's demon horde army the same army that was used to attack Beta Ray Bill's people.
